When Granny told you to “count your blessings”, she wasn’t just sharing a nice folksy way to virtue signal, she was teaching you an essential survival skill.
Gratitude is how we acknowledge our humble place in the the universe, our place in the big dance. Gratitude is your way of telling ourselves what really matters; a damn hard thing do at the best of times.
Gratitude calibrates us with our creator. The trick is, it’s a choice. Nobody will make you do it, it has to come from within. But that’s where the power lies.
